Whats on MY workdesk week 140

Wow.. I am actually posting on a Wednesday.. 
and what happens on a Wednesday... yes we all go to Julia's for a desk party
and have a jolly good snoop at other peoples workspace.. be it small like mine
or amazingly huge and  packed with lots of tools and things to play with
Although there is a downside to my Wednesday
My so called mister MOJO has left and has been left for quiet some time
I have also had a few problems with where I can craft... The dining room table is a no no
Paul's mum has taken over it...(can't complain it's her table)
My craft desk in the small bedroom has been a no go as it was folded away..
What with the snow and cold, and warmth of us in the room, condensation was a BIG issue
so much so the whole room was rather wet !!!
Paul's mum has a wall full of books, well not on the wall but shelves on the wall.. 
and because the room was guessed it the books where damp/wet
So I have spent the last two days moving books, drying walls, floor and windows constantly
so had to move my little craft area into another room, then just didn't get time..
but the good news is... I moved it back last night..YAY
Not for long the wall behind my desk will be full of books again soon
So I will have no work space again !!
but here it is......
 Not much to see really
I am still unpacking and getting sorted
 You can just make out the two cards started and not finished
And more things to get put away.. or at least stacked neatly
I have Paul's Valentines card half finished, and I have a anniversary card to finish and get posted today!!!
Yes I am pushing it for them receiving it on time.. then I have to start on Paul's Birthday card
and four more family cards !!
So I am going to go lock myself back in the bedroom and get on with making cards
Wish me luck and thanks for stopping by my desk

 This is what I have been doing...yes knitting
Another dish cloth/floor cloth and the start of a scarf for Paul.
 If someone would kindly send my mister MOJO back... I would be so happy
I say only a man would walk out on a women when he is needed !!!!

LOL - yep it must be a mister.

You need wheels on your desk so you can move it around as and when needs must.

Hi Claire,

I see you've been pushing forward, even without Mr. Mojo. Good for you! Sometimes we just need to keep on. Your knitting looks great. I love knitting up "spa cloths." They are nice and quick projects. Right now I'm working on a baby blanket - can't wait to get it done!!

Stephanie said...

Don't worry--mojo comes and goes and I'm sure that yours will be back soon!

Julia Dunnit said...

Aw Claire, it's probably a stress related mojo break, after all, the condensation problem affecting your Ma in Law 's stuff is a right old worry. So craft on, it'll return, but hmmm, try not to breathe!!!

Kim Dellow said...

Hope your find your mojo, try under the sofa! Sneaky Mojo always running off when you need it most! Fab peak at your desk :) Kim

Lou said...

How long can you hold your breathe, do you think you can get a card done in that time? must be hard sharing a space! Hope Mr Mojo returns soon, Lou x

Sarah said...

You can't beat a bit of knitting therapy and love - mojo will be back.....Thanks for letting us look in and peek at your desk... Sarah at 7

Katie said...

I hope your mojo comes back soon. I hate when mine goes away! I just keep doing little crafty things, then it comes back :)

Happy WOYWW (on Friday!)

Glad you got your desk back, even if it is only for a short time.

We used to have a room with mega condensation problems, and we got a dehumidifier -a brilliant move! No more damp windows or walls. Don't know why we didn't think of it sooner! Not your everyday shopping purchase tho is it!,

Take care and glad you have a desk again!
